I thought I would post a few more pictures of our Myrtle Beach trip, along with what’s happening around our place today.
I drove the MH to Meijer to top off the gas tank today. Afraid if I waited until our next trip to stop and get gas it might be much higher. I tank was between half and 1/4 full.
The limit on the pump was pre set to $75.00. I was working on the third cycle of that limit when it clicked off, full showing $63.00. That’s $150.00 PLUS the $63.00 for a grand total of $213.00 . The cost per gallon, $3.989! Two days ago the price was $3.849, yesterday when we passed the station the price sign was turned off.
The news media are saying that we could see $5.00 by the summer. Wonderful, just wonderful! At $5.00 per gallon it will put a drastic slow down on our driving, especially the MH. Not to mention the slow down in the economy.
Tina, our youngest daughter mentioned yesterday that she just received her water bill and it was double what it should be. She mentioned that her toilet made a funny noise every once in a while. I told her that is where she is loosing the extra water, the flapper needs replacing. I looked on my busy schedule to see where I could fit her in and take a look at the toilet. Looks like tomorrow around 11am I told her.
Arrived at Tina’s home a little before 11 am today. She was busy as a bee doing her laundry and house work. The girl has her hands full being a single mom, holding a full time job, and still keeping the her home in order! Good Job Tina, I’m proud of ya.
It didn’t take long to see that it indeed was the flapper valve that needed replaced. Off to ACE Hardware to purchase a new one. Back to Tina’s and the new valve installed within an hour. Job done! No more high water bills for Tina!
Wilma was busy all day today doing laundry and house work also. All the clothes we wore on our trip had to be laundered. Many, many loads to do. Plus we are feeling “jet lag” I guess you could call it, from our ride home.
Tomorrow looks like another busy day. We are going to meet our close friends, Gary and his wife Cheryl at the Cracker Barrel in Port Huron tomorrow evening. From there we will be following them to a 50’s & 60’s concert.
So until next time, be safe and God Bless
